Applying admin creditions for Configuration database and Application pool? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Community

        Right now I am beginning to use Sharepoint.  I have a Windows 2003 Server which
    I am the administrator of.  I setup IIS and everything.  I only have one computer
    but I am setting it up as a "Farm".  The instructions say I have to use "Windows
    Components" to setup the Farm.  Windows Components says insert the cd.  The cd says
    it is Sharepoint 2.0 and as I am setting it up it says I need to create a Configutation Database
    and "Application Pool". 

        The application pool says I can use the existing application pool which to my
    recollection the name begins with Stsadmin... but the problem is that even though I am
    the adminsitrator of the Windows 2003 Server it is not letting me create Configuration database
    and  the applicaion pool using my Windows 2003 Server administrator username and password.

        As the administrator of the Windows 2003 Server what credentials do I need to
    provide Windows Componenets to create the Configuration database and the Application Pool?

        Thank you

  • If you want to start using SharePoint you are in my opinion wasting your time with using the version of SharePoint that is included with Windows 2003 Server.

    That was an early version of WSS 2.0 which came out in 2003.

    Instead the (also back) version of WSS 3.0 that came out in 2007 will also work well on Windows Server 2003 if you can find a download to it. (It was free).

    [The latest free version SPF 2010 *might* work with Windows Server 2003 (it is usually used with Windows Server 2008) and if you want to consider that you should ask *in a SP 2010 forum* if SPF 2010 can be used with Windows Server 2003).]

  • HI,

    You can use the credentials having "DOMAIN ADMIN","DBCREATOR" & "SECURITYADMIN" privileges on SQL server as a Configuration DB account and same as a app pool account.
